Wellbeing Sessions and Courses

Alongside yoga, meditation, and relaxation, the Lotus Room offers a range of wellbeing sessions and courses.

Mindfulness & Meditation

Fridays 1900 - 2000
Each session is based around a theme and includes a live, guided meditation, simple teaching, discussion and practical mindfulness exercises. You will come away from the workshop feeling happier, calmer and clearer than when you arrived and take away the tools you need to continue that feeling of peace and joy going forward in your life.

Cost is £10 for a drop-in session. Weekly classes commence from Friday 10 January 2020. Taster sessions are on Fridays 22 November and 13 December. For course bookings, go here. For more information, visit Simply Mindfulness..

Mindfulness for Health & Wellbeing

Sundays 1900 - 2045
Devised by Julian Daizan Skinner, creator and founder of Zenways, this course combines simple but extremely effective techniques that have been tried and tested over centuries in the Zen tradition with recent scientific research into the benefits of mindfulness. Both meditation and mindfulness help you to develop the inner resources to cope with the challenges you face in life. This course is suitable if you want an introduction to meditation and also if you need to deal with particular stress-related problems.

Cost is £115 for 8 weeks from Sunday 23 February to Sunday 12 April 2020. Includes all the course materials and recorded guided meditations for you to practice at home.
